    A few weeks ago the US government said that it will now allow Switchblades to be sold to 30 other countries, mostly in Europe. Good news.

    Switchblade is a top product for armies around the world, however USA will not allow them out because they are so good. Cannot let neither our friends nor enemies get this technology, so it will not be highly used unless used by USA.

    Serious Questions: why are these guys not cleaning up? Are they tied up in government red tape? Are their profits limited by some Pentagon blah/blah/blah? Do they not have the latest and greatest equipment? Is R&D eating up their cash flow? What am I missing? AVAV should be/could be(?) writing their own ticket, what with the US border crisis, Ukraine, Taiwan, North Korea... What's holding them back?

    Let me get this correct……June 14, 2022 at 9:10 AM EDT
    AEROVIRONMENT AWARDED $6.2 MILLION PUMA 3 AE UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS CONTRACT BY UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS

    The marine corps orders $6.2 Mil of Puma 3 AE’s on May 3rd, 22. AVAV announces the award on June 14th with delivery to be completed by July, 2022! Please notice in the lead PR…… “target acquisition in day or night maritime and land-based operations”!

    With lots of discussion regarding food shortages and Ukraine grain being unable to ship w/o Russian interference and/or piracy, seems to me the US is planning a naval intervention in Ukraine and international waters to get much needed grain to European and Asian markets!

    Another validation of the critical sustainability of AVAV technology! Enough to support market capitalization? That is the mystery!

    Some funny reporting with different news agencies reporting different things, but eps was $0.26 per diluted share not $0.24 as reported in some of the articles. Whether that is a miss or a beat depends on which analysts you polled, but was roughly in-line. Revenue was a beat, all are agreed. The 4th quarter fiscal 2018 was an impossible comparison - revenue and earnings have now shifted to an even distribution over the year, as they noted, and the 2018 number included the large litigation settlement benefit. But overall growth for 2019 was massive, and they are predicting double digit revenue growth for fiscal 2020. $200 million in government appropriated funds not counted yet in the backlog. New acquisition, new projects, continued growth in government spending on drones, it wasn’t the blockbuster earnings report many of us hoped for, but the future is still bright.

    From January 18, 2022 AVAV Press Release……what shareholders and potential shareholders need to know the Switchblade 300/600, Tactical Missile System, is but the point of the sword for a comprehensive defense solution! Taken together and at some point AVAV will announce multiple $M’s of equipment orders from US and NATO forces! IMHO $200-$300 million additional incremental sales over foreseeable future.

    ARLINGTON, Va., January 18, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), a global leader in intelligent, multi-domain robotic systems, today introduced the Switchblade® 300 Sensor to Shooter Kit, a capability that enables operators to instantly transfer target coordinates from AeroVironment’s small unmanned aircraft systems (SUAS) – Puma™ 3 AE, Puma™ LE, Raven® B or Wasp® AE – to Switchblade 300 loitering missile systems.

    Maker Of Switchblade Loitering Munitions Ready To Produce ‘Thousands’ For Ukraine If Washington Acts
    Wahid Nawabi, CEO of AeroVironment, which makes Switchblade loitering munitions, told me in an interview the company has a dedicated production facility ready to make ‘thousands’ of the weapons for Ukraine, if the U.S. government wants them.
    Loitering munitions, sometimes called kamikaze drones, can be launched from long range without needing to locate a target first. Nawabi believes that the requirements for the current conflict exactly match what Switchblades were designed to do. Loitering munitions like the Switchblade 600 can find and destroy a tank from 25 miles away, giving a huge asymmetrical advantage to the defenders. They could neutralize Russian artillery and destroy tank formations before they become a threat.
    But while the U.S. has sent over 5,000 Javelin anti-tank missiles and vast number of other weapons, it has only sent a few hundred loitering munitions. The reasons for this lie in the history of these weapons as a niche tool used by U.S. Special Forces; while not quite a secret weapon it has remained shrouded in mystery.
